CHEYENNE – Gov. Matt Mead kicked off the 2018 Governor’s Business Forum this week with a synopsis of challenges Gov.-elect Mark Gordon may face as he assumes the role this winter.

Although Mead said his successes included establishing greater regulatory relief and improving a number of state industries, he noted education funding, rising health-care costs and the state tax structure will likely be Gordon’s main concerns.
